Good points, all!My first reaction to a question like this is: How do they do it now?1) bypass the NFC terminal altogether2) give your cc to the waiter or bartender to take to the NFC terminal3) pay with your cc at the front desk where the NFC terminal is locateed! and 2 are insecure and are part of the problem that EMC is trying to resolve.3 is inconvenient and could allow a customer to run-up a bill (before approval) that he cannot pay for.What appears most likely, is...
Here ya' go for starters: Mierda, Scheise and Merde!To answer your specific pregunta -- the verb is chengar.
Yeah ... I'm certainly guilty of pushing that limit!
Mmm ... Profound!Since reading your post, I've been mentally reviewing my conversations with French individuals as a visitor to their country. I suspect that I have insulted them -- though unintentional and unknowing, it's no excuse.Brings to mind the cartoon panels of the "Ugly American". There's this American tourist, decked out in Hawaiian shirt, shorts, baseball cap -- camera gear hanging everywhere. The American tourist is trying to make himself understood to...
OK!Here's some more info on how it works!http://bankinnovation.net/2014/09/heres-how-the-security-behind-apple-pay-will-really-work/
Enjoyed talking ...Back in 1973, my parents took my wife, 7-year-old daughter and me on a grand tour of Europe ... after a few days in London, we went to Paris -- Stayed in the Intercontinental (now the Westin) on the Rue de Rivoli ... could see the Eiffel tower from our balcony.

Not so much if you include lobbyists/politicians in the mix ... They've just institutionalized the processes!
Mavericks and Yosemite can use HandOff to do the job without tethering.I suspect that all new Apple hardware (Macs, MacBooks, AppleTV, iPhones, iPads, etc.) will have NFC and TouchID.Any or all of these device can be used as an ApplePay paying device -- or as an ApplePay/General NFC/Credit card merchant POST.
Ha!There are some things that that just won't work with ApplePay ... and maybe not even a credit card.I'm reminded about a semi-fashion mail-order apparel house we were trying to automate (while I worked at IBM).The least obvious (but most interesting) part of the process -- was opening the mail ... Opening the mail??Yes, Opening the mail! The two partners would arrive each day (even if they had to get off their death beds) to open the mailEach envelope contained an...
IDK the length ... I'm an Apple Developer and I can't find any information ... yet.But, even when the SDK becomes available, I suspect the token package contents and algorithms will be privy only to Apple and the Banks providing the ccs and accepting the tokens -- neither you, the customer, the app developer nor the merchant need to know.But I suspect that the token doesn't to be as long as the 23 characters included in a cc swipe (or key entered) transaction:16 char...
